Did you know that a move within the same state could either be a local or intrastate move?
When determining which type of move you’re doing, whether its local or intrastate, knowing what is considered a local move and what is an intrastate move will help you to understand how to plan and how different moving companies work when doing local and intrastate moves.
For many moving companies a local move is less than 100 miles.
Other companies consider a local move to be less than 50 miles. If hiring a professional moving company to transport your belongings, make sure to confirm their policy on the distance of local and intrastate moving. Local moves are able to take place in one day, sometimes in just a few hours and are priced by the hour. An intrastate move can take up to a week for your items to be delivered and are charged differently than for a local move. Like all moves, moving companies will usually have a minimum fee. It’s also important to know that licensing requirements differ across the states for local and intrastate moves. Before you move, make sure to familiarize yourself with licensing requirements within your state.
People moving often ask, what is difference in interstate and intrastate?
An interstate move means that you are crossing state lines, from one state to another. An intrastate move is a move that takes place within one state.
